With rivers flowing over red mark, Assams flood scenario still dire

Guwahati: With rivers flowing above the danger level in various parts of the state, the flood situation in Assam remained dire on Sunday.

A Central Water Commission (CWC) morning report stated that the Brahmaputra was flowing over the red mark in Nematighat in the Jorhat district.

The Kopili in Kampur (Nagaon) and Puthimari in Kamrup district have also breached the danger level.

Several other rivers, including the Brahmaputra at different places, were also flowing above the warning level, the CWC bulletin said.

Incessant rain across the state since the last few days has led to the first wave of floods affecting the people.

As per an Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA) report, till Saturday 37,535 people in 10 districts of the state have been affected by the deluge so far.

One person has been killed in a landslide in Guwahati, though the flood waters have not claimed any life so far.

Damage or breach of embankments has been reported from across the state, with massive erosion also occurring in different parts.

Other infrastructure, like roads, bridges and schools, have also been submerged or damaged in the first wave of floods.
